Governor Kitzhaber Applauds Unanimous Committee Vote on Oregon Insurance Exchange

(SALEM, Ore.) — Governor Kitzhaber released the following statement fafter the Senate Health Care, Human Services and Rural Health Policy Committee vote on SB 99: 

“I applaud the Senate Health Care, Human Services and Rural Health Policy Committee for its unanimous vote on Senate Bill 99, establishing the Oregon Insurance Exchange. This legislation will give more than 350,000 Oregonians access to quality, affordable health care and give Oregon small businesses the ability to provide coverage for their workers. I urge the Legislature to quickly approve Senate Bill 99 so we can build a strong health insurance Exchange that works for Oregon, rather than wait for the federal government to create one for our state that would meet minimum national standards.”
